Finding Free Vectors, Stock Photos And PSD Files

World's First 3D Pen

Well, this isn't a Roland product but it's pretty cool if you ask me. The World's First 3D pen! Having read the article it strikes me being a super precise glue gun of sorts but using plastics that solidify hard the moment they leave the pen.

'Airfix' style bussiness cards

I can think of several ways these could be produced depending on the substrate you wanted to use, but what I really like is the thinking behind it.
